The Club

“Its broad lounge, its bar, its dining room none so elaborately furnished as to make a rough-handed hunter pause at its door, nor yet dowdy as to make a diamond pendant swing ill at ease were rooms in which the people who made Africa I knew danced and talked and laughed, hour after hour” Beryl Markam, West with the Night, 1942

It is not just its history that makes Muthaiga Country Club so special. Today, some of its finest moments are contemporary: its comfortable en suite bedrooms with their modern amenities, its first-class sports facilities and its extended library with its 20,000 books. Then, of course, there is the food, of which the Club is justifiably proud – fresh roasts and daily à la carte is overseen by an army of classically trained chefs. At Muthaiga Country Club, however deeply the past may envelop you, your present comfort always comes first. If you are planning to visit Kenya and your club has reciprocating arrangements with ours, no one will make you feel more at home.

Colonial Splendor (Members ONLY)

Are you a member of the club? Feel free to enter, eat and play. Are you not a member? Then get out! You can only visit this club if you are a friend of a member or a member but nevertheless, it is worth trying to get in. My cousin decided to surprise me with a tour visit to his club, this is how I got the chance to be part of the colonial splendor! Inside the golf court club. Muthaiga Country Club is a famous part of Nairobi’s colonial life and is a reminder of how things were for the old settlers back in the day. Nestled in this haven of tranquility is this family-friendly old colonial-style clubhouse. Situated on “Ambassador Avenue” as the area peppered with embassies,(from the USA embassy residence to that of the Saudi embassy)is fondly called, this quiet and safe area boasts tree-lined avenues and well-guarded streets. The club sits on expansive well-manicured lawns behind well-manned security gates accessed via members’ swipe cards or by guests on a list. Past the clubhouse sits Pinks Restaurant, the more relaxed part of the club, nestled next to the pool and children’s play area. Keen-eyed caregivers and pool attendants look over the children, allowing parents to relax and take in the scenery. An optional set menu or buffet allows for a variety of meal and heath options. It is possible to stay there and the guest rooms are comfortable but basic. The bar is wonderful as are the gardens but there are traditions and rules which must be respected and you will be politely reminded by a member of staff if you infringe on any. Some may find this place stuffy but if you like old-fashioned style and service then this place is highly recommended. It is a breath of fresh air in an otherwise rather depressing city (Nairobi). I found them to be really strict, but guess what! If you can’t beat them join them! some of the rules that apply: Taking pictures is prohibited no phones, no laptops except in designated areas. The “colonialness” of the place evokes “Out of Africa”, but also oppression. Rich history and fabulous library. Service and food are top-notch. Well priced, (Expensive if you are not a member) great variety and a desert choice fit for royalty. Glad I got to experience this venue and consider it a treat. . A great, family-friendly multi-cultural Club that still however remembers its origins proudly.

Muthaiga country club is a hotel located off the highway in a business and residential area. It’s easy to get a cab from Nairobi city center. It cost not more than KES300. I worked here for a while, and everything about this fantastic country club is beyond your expectation. This country club is for members only, and for you to become a member, you have to fill out and sign some paperwork. The club is known for its functions like weddings, birthday parties, and team-building held in the board room or the green garden. It also has a fine dining restaurant with an ala-carte menu and a Pinks restaurant that serves all the alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages for guests to have a good time watching games and for the kids to enjoy themselves at the huge heated pool. The food is always freshly made by their well-trained chef, and it is affordable. The staffs working in all departments are very active friendly, and always keep the place clean. The rooms are gorgeous and spotless. The lobby is large and open, with a high ceiling and seating for leisure and business. The club also has different parking spots, making it easy to park.
